If I had to pick a single driving belief in my life thus far, it’s the importance of hope. Finding hope for yourself and for the people around you can make all the difference in your life’s journey. I have always felt a calling to help people in whatever ways they needed, from dealing with life’s stressors to finding hope again. I try to incorporate creativity and laughter into my counseling to help build up and empower my clients throughout their therapeutic journey.

Stephen specializes in helping couples work through connection issues and individuals work through issues of trauma, anxiety, and depression. Stephen has a particular interest in working with people struggling with matters of gender and sexuality and those who have experienced spiritual abuse and shame as a result. Prior to returning to the field of psychotherapy, Stephen had a career in law enforcement working as a police officer in St. Louis city and as an FBI agent before coming to terms with the fact that he was better suited to be an agent of mercy and healing rather than an agent of justice.

Each of us shapes and is shaped by the relationships we have with others, with our bodies, with our stories, with our cultures, and with our worlds. We find ourselves here and now because of where we’ve been and what has happened, because of how we carry our experiences forward and how they have made us. I am awed by the creative resilience with which we integrate or shoulder the burdens we’ve felt. I find astonishing and courageous the ways in which we not only survive, but find ways to thrive, to express ourselves, and live into the fullness of human experience despite those things that have hurt us and that hurt us now.

Being human can be hard. Especially when you feel isolated, different-than, stagnant, or unworthy. Throughout both my personal and professional work in therapy, I've come to understand that these states of being human are largely unavoidable, yet teach us so much about ourselves and our needs, if we allow ourselves to explore them. I believe that we already have many of the answers we seek, and engaging in therapy is one way to access the insight you already posses. I'd love to help you develop self-compassion, understanding, and tolerance for the wide-range of emotions that come with being human!

**Now Accepting New Clients** I see adults and adolescents who typically present with anxiety and/or depression. If I had to name just one specialty, it would be anxiety. Most people suffer some form of it at some point in their lives. When left untreated, it can lead to more severe symptoms and a whole host of diagnoses. I practice primarily Cognitive Behavioral techniques. I will talk to you about your beliefs, expectations, and how you experience the world. I'll teach you to be more accepting of yourself, so you can stop judging and reacting from created stories. I will also help you improve foundational behaviors.

Are you high achieving and successful, but struggle with an inner voice that tells you that you'll never be good enough? You may work extra hard to combat this critical inner voice with overworking. Yet you're left feeling empty and insignificant at the end of the day. The adolescents and adults that I see often struggle with managing difficult emotions, anxiety, depression, and/or challenging behaviors. They have often experienced painful things in the past that they have buried. Often my clients struggle to pinpoint a specific event from their past that has impacted them.
